    My New Ride

    Its finally here!
    Ordered this bad boy last week.
    Have been working like crazy to be able to afford one, been a while since i've been for a fish and cant wait to get out!

    Specs -
    Viking Tempo Fisherman Kayak (Granite Colour)
    Got it from the Chermside store for $1100
    This included Roof Racks, Paddle, Seat, Front + Rear Mesh and an Anchor Tie down
    Also Comes with a 10 year warranty!
    The guys there are great and were very generous to throw in all the extras.
    It took about a week to get, this was because I ordered a colour that they didnt have in stock.

    I'll be taking her down to the pine tomorrow depending on the wind!
    Planning on going up and down the pine chasing bass and bream closer to redcliffe!

    Might even paddle out to mud on a windy day and do a couple of drifts of mossys reef! (joking lol)

    So glad to have one now and look forward to posting many reports from my new ventures!

    Nice yak! I have the same model but in yellow!!
    Such a stable kayak, I can literally sit on the edge with my legs in the water throwing a lure and not even worry about capsizing. Not the easiest thing to paddle fast but hey, its a fishing yak! If your around Manly Im always keen for a fish.

    On ya, Jack. Top looking yak there. Lots of storage too, which is great. Happy fishing.

    Was out at south pine yesterday morning early and get a few bream. The biggest went 32cm. All caught on either small hardbodies or gulp sp's on 1/20 jig heads. Was a top day to be out too.
